Nigeria’s central bank unexpectedly reduced its key interest rate for the first time in more than 3years to help boost the economy.

The Monetary Policy Committee voted to cut the rate to 13.5 percent from 14 percent, Governor Godwin Emefiele told reporters Tuesday in the capital, Abuja. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey was for the key rate to be held at 14 percent.
